Intricate Drawings on Wood



I was immediately drawn to Camellie's handmade drawings on wood. Originally from Romania, now living and working in the UK, Cami's aesthetic pulls hard. Her intricate ink on white acrylic complements the texture of the wood. The grain patterns, rough edges, and fibrous composition of bark frames her starkly beautiful illustrations, and the contrast is just plain lovely.

Peculiar Little Paintings





Angela Dalinger's work is, well, odd. Characteristically so. The subject matter, which can be violent, morose or sexually-charged, conflicts with her two-dimensional, rudimentary, colorful style-- leaving me feeling somewhat peculiar about the whole thing, and at the same time drawn to the idiosyncrasies. In true art brut form, her work seems intentionally unintentional and subversive. I'm left wanting an explanation I know I'll never get. Or maybe I've overthought the whole damn thing and she's just painting pretty little pictures in a quiet 100-person town bordering a forest.

When Women Laugh



Inspired by Roy Lichtensteinís Shipboard Girl, Danor Shtruzman captures laughing women in watercolor. His work shares the same cliched femininity and comic book sensibility as the pop art icon, but his use of greyscale on aged book pages adds a texture and meaning all his own. His Laughing Girl series is an unabashed tribute to happiness in a sometimes lonely world. Smile and the world smiles with you.

Drawings to Make Your Crush Giggle



Are you not so smooth with the ladies? Does your mind blank out around cute guys? A Daily Pickup Line could turn your luck around. It's an illustrated collection by Alyssa Duhe of the funniest flirtations, with some of the classics that don't get old and also a ton of original jokes that your crush hasn't heard a million times already. We originally picked this blog out from our followers on tumblr to be the next Tumblr of the Week, but couldn't pass up the chance to help out those in need on Valentines Day. Plus, I wanna hear your favorite pickup line in the comments.

The Quintessential, Quirky, Compendium of Cats / A Mini-Coloring Book Featuring 28 Global Artists





Purring softly in the corner, curled up and licking itself, is DA's first mini-coloring book, and we suddenly realized that we never made the acquaintance. So, dear community, we're proud to introduce you to "The Quintessential, Quirky, Compendium of Cats!"

As submissions rolled in for our second coloring book, we noticed an undeniable theme. Cats from here till Sunday - cats wearing clothes, admiring cubist paintings, looking French, sipping coffee. So we hoarded (*ahem, I mean compiled) them like a crazy cat lady, knowing one day we'd find them a proper home, a book all their own.

And so the mini-coloring book was born! The book -- featuring 28 global artists in a mashup of styles-- is truly the catís meow, because it's not only creative and cuddly, it's charitable.



In honor of OKAT's own shelter cat, Mylo, Doodlers Anonymous and The Quintessential, Quirky, Compendium of Cats! is proud to support The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animalsģ and its mission to save lives. (aspca.org)

Like anything from our shop, this will ship with a DA doodle sticker, bookmark and postcard. So color it up, get crazy with a crayon, and help support our feline friends!

Tumblr of the Week: Lucha!

I'm glad I stumbled over Luciana Ojeaís blog lurking within our tumblr followers. She's an Argentinian illustrator whose sketchbook is filled with countless quirky characters coming alive on every page. Occasionally, they even wander off the paper and onto random objects. Maybe it's from all the screaming and smiling and arms waving in the air, but I love the sense of excitement I get from her crazy little people.

If you're addicted to tumbling as well as doodling, visit Doodlers Anonymous on Tumblr for even more daily inspiration. You might even see yourself on there!

Doodlers Anonymous was Hacked

To all our friends, over the last 72 hours Doodlers Anonymous was hacked 4 to 5 different times. The hackers replaced our content with pornographic and offensive images and words. This has not been fun. We have since taken down the content and are doing our best to monitor it going forward, but unfortunately many of you are still seeing the offensive content loading up in your RSS readers. This is due to it being cached in the RSS feed on some of these readers, like Pulse and Feedly. We are very sorry for the inconvenience and are doing everything we can to keep this from happening again.
